Well I don't know if this is the prednisone tapering but I never had this in the last few weeks since I started doing it but I started Imuran 75mg on Tuesday and since Friday i've been really tried and out of it.  This could also be over the fact i'm not getting sleep (which since I started Pred I haven't really, and I don't like taking sleeping pills all the time) and wondering could it be the Imuran kicking in and causing this? I'm really confused.. lol
 
I hope this isn't an allergic reaction to Imuran, I don't know what to think of it.  Any idea/help?
I take Imuran at 1pm everyday, maybe moving it to bedtime will help?

I think it is a little bit of both the tapering down and the starting of the imuran. Since you don't have to take those pills 3x a day, I heard from a lot of people here that taking it at night works. =0) I'm one of the ones that have to take it 3x a day so I don't get that luxury but I have noticed that as time goes on little by little the extreme tiredness from the imuran is lessening to something more manageable.

When I went off the pred I thought that a truck ran over me and even more a couple of weeks AFTER I was done taking them. Add to that the fatigue that I felt when I first started on the imuran on top of the NORMAL fatigue of the crohn's and I can totally understand why you are tired.

Hang in there! Hope you find your balance.
